drank Paris by Harney & Sons
24 tasting notes

I bought a tin of the Paris sachets over the weekend at my local Fresh Market store. After reading all the positive reviews online here, I was excited to brew it up! Definitely, I am in the process of learning what flavors I prefer in teas. While this was a well blended tea, there is a taste in it that is not my preference. Its the same taste I pick up in the Vanilla Comora by Harney so I am presuming its the vanilla. While my favorite coffee creamer is vanilla, that does not seem a preferred flavor for me in tea. It is puzzling to me as I KNOW that I would love eating a vanilla flavored cookie with most any tea! If anyone has any idea what I may be tasting in these two teas other than vanilla that may be a common flavoring please let me know. I wanted so much to like Paris so it is a bit disappointing. I still have lots of others I want to taste by Harney & Sons and others. Does anyone have any samples of the Diamond Jubilee tea? I can trade for something in my cupboard!

Bio

Although I have always loved tea, it has only been lately that I have decided to try out various teas in an attempt to learn more about various teas, flavors, and attributes of teas and why I like different teas. My children are grown and I enjoy a full life with work, friends, family, pets, and quite a few hobbies and interests. In addition to enjoying different teas, the health benefits of tea interest me as well.
